BEAVER CREEK – Chicago’s legendary sketch comedy theater, The Second City’s “Laugh Out Loud” tour, comes to the Vilar Performing Arts Center (VPAC) in Beaver Creek Tuesday night. The show will include a best-of collection of sketches, songs and improvisations from The Second City’s 52 year history.

It all started in a converted Chinese laundry on Chicago’s north side in 1959. No one could know that by the next century, The Second City would still be considered the premier comedy institution in the world.

The Second City boasts among its alumni, the world’s best and brightest comedians and comic actors including Tina Fey, Stephen Colbert, Steve Carell, Gilda Radner and Bill Murray.

The Second City is celebrating more than 50 years of cutting edge satiric revues and continues to deliver the leading voices in comedy while touring the globe. With scripted and improvisational elements, audiences enjoy being part of the show and playing along with the next generation of comic legends.

Whether it’s ripped from the morning headlines or a classic gem from their 52 year archives, The Second City is always a laugh-out-loud hit.

Tickets for The Second City are $37 and are available online at, by phone at 888-920-ARTS(2787) or in person at the VPAC Box Office in Beaver Creek and Marketplace Box Office in Vail Village.
